use of government property, a rental fee, recreation and park fees, golf fees. many of the things we charge are exempt. in the short term, it does not have a large effect. the main effect is that it constrains our ability to grow what we currently have and it constraints of our ability to increase the rates which currently charge. it could have indirect effects to the extent that it constrains the state also. if the state is coming back on their services and we want environmental mitigation or public health programs the state used to provide and they do not do it anymore, the local government could have increased costs. the next slide is a quick summary of the approval requirement for different types of revenue before and after. sometimes we assume everybody knew what they were before. i thought i would give an overview of three general types of revenue and what it takes to increase them before and after proposition 26. a general purpose tax takes a majority vote of the electorate to pass, or a tax increase. to create or increase a tax requires a 50% vote of the electorate. if you wa

data management system common between us. that will help. president o'brien: agreed. it could be a problem in the discussion. but one real simple question, straight forward answer, i'd like to ask. when it goes from the d.b.i. to the planning department, is that in an envelope and walked across, or does it come over electronically? >> both, president. certainly we have sort of a routine transfer for building permits. they are transferred from and to d.b.i. and planning. but when it does come to messages, of course, i think that as commissioner walker pointed out the need to radically modernize, perhaps, is a way of saying it, the permitting process with the new permit system being developed. it is an example of this. we acknowledge that we need to drag ourselves into the 21st century. we acknowledge we need to communicate more electronically, that that in itself will be a better communicator, and it's a better way to serve the public. we're not there yet. president o'brien: sorry to interrupt you. point taken. that's definitely the goal that will probably come up. i would just reit

common sense would tell us that that kind of diew -- duplication is not efficient and is not effective use of taxpayer dollars. my amendment would review each program and submit the recommendations which must be considered by congress under procedures like we use under the budget act t could not be filibustered t would have to be voted on. congress would not be able to ignore the commission's reports. the amendment provides expedited procedures that would force congress to consider and debate the commission's work. congress would have two years to consider and pass the commission's recommendations or to reauthorize the program before it would be abollished by operation of law. in other words, the program is abollished if congress fails to reauthorize it twa years after the commission completes its review and analysis of the program. this commission would help force congress to do the necessary oversight to make sure that every taxpayer dollar is wisely spent. while we all do our best to ensthiewr proper oversight is given to each program, we don't have the tools currently available to
